GSU staff rep Steve Torgerson is helping a GSU member prepare and file a claim with the Workers' Compensation Board. The member contacted Steve for assistance after receiving the results of a hearing test and an audiologist's recommendation that he file a sick leave claim with WCB.
Contact our GSU staff reps for assistance with company management, insurance companies, or government agencies like EI and Workers' comp.

Alix Rejean (CPS Moose Jaw) and Leon Martineau (Richardson - Maple Creek) will be at Mosaic Stadium to cheer the Riders on when they face the BC Lions on August 13.

Last week's web page contest asked for your favourite vacation spot in Saskatchewan. 
Alix's favourite summer destination is Cypress Hills where he enjoys zip lining and many other activities.
Leon entered our Tuesday Members' Memo contest by telling us his first summer job was pumping gas - and he loved it.

Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who played along and entered our contests. There were so many interesting and entertaining entries that we shared a few of our favourites here.

Labour Day tickets are up for grabs next. 

Watch your email inbox this week for a GSU survey. Complete the survey by the deadline date and you could be one of two lucky winners of two tickets to the upcoming Labour Day Classic.

Are you spending too much time on social media?

Are you able to put your phone away, sit back, and enjoy the view as the passenger on a road trip? Can you enjoy your lunch with your friends without firing up Facebook? Do you watch concerts through the screen on your phone?

Social media is addictive, and despite its moniker, social media quietly ensures we are actually less social.
